( 4UMF NEWS ) Katherine Jackson Kept Away From Kids:
The 15-year-old had been silent beside his more vocal sister Paris, 14, as the famous dynasty devolved into civil war, but he stepped forward on Twitter with the claim Janet blocked his access to beloved matriarch Katherine Jackson.
He posted an image of a purported group chat he initiated with aunts Janet and Rebbie on Monday afternoon, hours after surveillance tape posted on TMZ.com appeared to show Janet grabbing at Paris’ cell phone during a visit to his Calabasas home with Michael’s brothers Randy and Jermaine.
“This is enough so I am texting you for the simple fact that WE DEMAND TO SPEAK TO MY GRANDMA NOW!!!” Prince Michael states in the text allegedly sent at 4:52 p.m.
“Don’t let them pls,” reads the reply attributed to Janet.
“I have been holding off on backing up my sister and her tweets avidly because I was waiting for the time to reveal my side. As long as I can remember my dad had repeatedly warned me of certain people and their ways,” Prince Michael said in a statement accompanying the image of the text exchange.
“Although I am happy my grandma was returned, after speaking with her I realized how misguided and how badly she was lied to. I’m really angry and hurt,” he said. “This group text message I had started was replied to but they didn’t know that I could see the responses. For this whole time, they denied us contact to our grandmother. If you continue with your lies I will continue with the truth.”
Prince deleted the messages a few hours later.
Janet, 46, has not responded publicly to accusations she’s one of the mysterious “third parties” who whisked Katherine away to an Arizona spa and kept her in isolation for a 10-day absence that led a Los Angeles judge to suspend her guardianship of Michael’s three kids.
But she appeared with Jermaine and Rebbie alongside Katherine when the 82-year-old gave an on-camera statement to ABC’s “Nightline” saying she was “devastated” about the custody shake-up and felt undermined by a “bunch of lies.”
A court-appointed lawyer who spoke to Paris and Prince Michael Monday night told Judge Mitchell Beckloff Wednesday that the two oldest children wanted their cousin TJ Jackson, one of Tito Jackson’s sons, to make a temporary guardianship bid in Katherine’s absence.
